Let The Hype Begin

The countdown is at three until Friday night's crosstown showdown between Amarillo High and Tascosa at Dick Bivins Stadium, and the wheels of the hype machine are already turning. You'll see plenty about the game in the print edition of the Globe-News up through Saturday morning's recap of the game itself.

It's hard to overhype crosstown rivalries, especially when both teams enter the week 2-0, but it seems a bit early in the season for a game of this magnitude. But that's what happens in District 2-5A, where last week Midland High and Midland Lee faced each other to open district.

There's plenty at stake for the Rebels and Sandies, most notably no worse than a share of the district lead which would send a message to the Basin schools that they'll have to deal with somebody from the north in a quest for a playoff berth. That is what will make it worth showing up at Bivins on Friday.

But just get there early.
